The Benefits of Yoga
If you've been following my Instagram and any of my social media in the past year, you'll know I love yoga. Yoga flow is my absolute favorite workout and it's made me appreciate the connection of how the mind and body works at the same time. I've been taking group classes with my trainer, Taylor, who teaches all levels of yoga. With my restless schedule, yoga has helped me maintain my fitness goals and being more mindful of my self. Here are few things that's benefited me from the workout classes.
Since I spend most of my time sitting at my desk or in cars, my posture deals a lot with strain , especially in lower back. Thankfully, practicing yoga has helped me stretch and tone my muscles. Poses like the plank will work on strengthening your arms, shoulders, legs and abs all at the same time. By taking a few minutes out of your day practicing poses like warrior two or downward facing dog will help you with feeling the full capabilities of your body's flexibility.
MAKES YOU HAPPY
Surprisingly, a few yoga poses to your daily routine can make you an emotionally stronger and happier person. By combining yoga and meditation results in higher serotonin levels (these are the happy hormones ). You may notice that you won't be so hard on yourself in the real world when you slip up. Allowing you to naturally be nicer to yourself.
Yoga poses requires you to concentrate on your breathing while keeping up with the poses. By noticing your breath calms your mind, making you more mentally relaxed. Stabilizing your awareness will allow you to concentrate better throughout your day. Overall, reducing the mental and physical stress through yoga, you'll be able to think better and have more organised thoughts.
